More from Sauder Village

Here are some of my favorites from this year's show:

Love the sheep and hooks!
 A Kris Miller (Spruce Ridge Studios) design

Love this Indian!

This Moby Dick pattern from the Woolley Fox is on my to-do list.

Another Woolley Fox design. 

On Lauren's blog (Rugs and Pugs), she has many great pictures from the Patty Yoder "Sheep Rug" exhibit. Here are a few of my favorites:

More exhibit rugs:

 These two are also Kris Miller's patterns.

WOW!  What a great show!

Sauder Village - Magdalena Briner Eby Exhibit

On my way to one day class at Cynthia Norwood's house, but here is a quick post of the rugs at the show yesterday.  More pics to come...  If you can make it to Archbold, Ohio - it is well worth the drive!

Rugs and Goats and Tigers - OH MY!

Today, the girlies and I drove to the Harvest Festival and Antique show in Zoar. It is a great event for the whole family - there were plenty of antiques, historic buildings, baked goods and animals! It did get pretty hot and I am still "drying off." 

Here are some photos of the antique rugs at the show.  There were more, but these are the ones I liked the most:
This one was from Maine and I really liked the colors.

I went back to look at this one again, but it was gone!

My favorite was the one at the top of this blog post.  It was in pretty good condition and really reminded me of a Magdalena Briner rug, so...I bought it.  The colors do not necessarily go with my house, but I could not leave it there and the price was right.

After the girls groaned through the antique show, we found some goats to feed.  This is Java.  Next, we found the petting zoo, which had some more goats:
AND, a 7 week old tiger!
Wow!  What an experience.  There was also a lemur, a tortoise, a zebra, and more.  All of the animals are from Stump Hill Farm, a wildlife refuge in Massillon, OH. 

My only other purchase today was some really yummy syrup!  I have never had hickory syrup before, but it is delicious and made locally.

The Historical Village in Zoar is really beautiful and well worth the trip, but now I am going to put up my feet and enjoy the a/c for a while!

As soon as school starts, I will no longer have the excuse that I am too busy with the kids to finish any projects.  I am 1/3 of the way done with binding this cute Spruce Ridge Studios mat.
My Brave Hunter is at a standstill.  I am bored with hooking the flowers. I think I will focus on the right side and finish the Indian and the background around him next...
...or maybe I will just follow Trucker's lead and take a break for a little while longer!
